Kaitlin was a fantastic guide!

This is a fantastic tour, especially if you get Katelyn as a guide. She is an actress and brings humor and drama to the tour along with a boatload of information. The tour was just the right length, about 1.5 hours. It was well worth the money. I highly recommend this tour to anyone.

This was a wonderful tour of high quality. The tour guide was excellent. We also go to see rooms that the general public didn’t get to see.

Thank you to Michelle for a great Catacombs tour! It was informative, and an overall Interesting tour.

We ran very late, missed the tour. The v kind people at the Catacombs gave us comp tickets when they learned we'd paid over $350 for a tour of a place that cost $90 admission for our group of 4 ($15/each)

FAQs

Can I take this tour if I'm pregnant?
It depends. The people who guard the Paris Catacombs consider women who are visibly pregnant to have a "mobility impairment" and therefore do not allow them to descend into the Catacombs. While we do not necessarily agree with this assessment, we have to respect their policies. If you are visibly pregnant we recommend that you do not take this tour and cannot accept responsibility if you are refused entrance.
What should I wear on my Paris Catacombs tour?
Regardless of what the weather is above ground, the tunnels of the Paris Catacombs are a consistent wet and cool 14°C/57°F all year long. Because of this, we recommend that you wear appropriate clothes, carrying a cardigan in summer and wearing layers that you can remove in winter. We also recommend comfortable walking shoes as the ground is uneven in places.
Do I need to bring an ID with me on this tour?
Yes! Please ensure that all members of your party have a valid ID on them on the day of the visit. This is particularly important for guests who have qualified for a student discount.
I'm claustrophobic. Can I still take a Catacomb tour?
While the Paris Catacombs are not the tightest catacombs we have ever visited, they are still a series of underground tunnels running deep below the streets of Paris. As such, we do not recommend visiting them if you suffer from Claustrophobia.
Are the restrictions on what I can bring on my Paris Catacombs tour?
Yes - only very small backpacks and handbags may be taken inside Paris Catacombs. More specifically, any bag must be smaller than 55 cm x 35 cm x 20 cm. There is no luggage storage at or near the Paris Catacombs and Walks cannot responsible for entry denied due to large luggage.
I am in a wheelchair: Can I take a tour of Paris Catacombs?
No. Unfortunately, due to their historic nature, the Catacombs are not wheelchair accessible.
